Arcadia University Hosts Free Film Screening of The Horse Boy, April 26
Glenside, PA—April 1, 2010—Arcadia University’s Community Cinema film series, a monthly film screening showcasing the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens (www.independentlens.org),will host a free film screening of The Horse Boy on Monday, April 26, at 7:15 p.m., in The Chat Performance Area in the Dining Complex. Arcadia University is located at 450 S. Easton Road, Glenside. The event is free and open to the public.
In The Horse Boy, Director Michael Orion Scott asks the question—How far would you travel to heal someone you love? For one Texas couple it meant a spiritual journey halfway around the world to Mongolia. When their son, Rowan was diagnosed with autism, they sought out the best treatments. But nothing worked until the discovery of their son’s profound love of horses and the magical effect on him. Part travel adventure, part shamanic quest, take a peek into how one family, even in the darkest moments, found a gateway to joy and wonder.
